When he escaped from Chesterflel

'I'lirockmorton Tclls of Bcncnts
of Proposed Law to __._
Hcnrico County.'
Would Givc People More Knowl?
edge of How Their Money
Is Spent.
Much plcnsed with the action of a
slgner of tho petltlon ln opposition to
hls blll, ln wlhtdrawlng hls name and
approving tho measure, C. XV. Throck?
morton now believe. his plnn will be
ratifled by tho v ers of Henrlco coun?
ty at the polls to-morrow. Ho thinks
that others wlll take slmllar action
when the .acts are known to them, and
that thoy wlll go to thc polls and vota
for the blll.
Mr. Throckmorton attrlbutea the op
ppsltlon and the anltnus of the petl?
tlon to the Influence of the Board of
Supervlsors, whose power over road
bulldlng wlll bc taken away if the
law ls app'oved by thc voters, and
given Instead to a road board. Hb
"The petltlon gotten up by the super?
vlsors ls so mlsleading that I am sure
many persons slgned it under a mlsap
prehenslon. ln ordo. that the voters
may undcrstand tho blll, l wlll on
deavor to answer these objectlons so
far as I recall them.
Selectlon of OiflccrA.
"Flrst: They say that tho new road
law wlll take the selectlon bf tha
road commlssloners away from 'tho
people and vest lt ln an appolntlng
hoard. During the sess'^n of the Leu
Islature of 190S, I got a blll through
the House leavlng the electlon of tho
road commlssloners to tho poople.
These same supervlsors were as stren
I tious ln their opposition to that blll
ns they are to this. So we may well
I be a little skeptlcal of thelr slncerlty
ln urging this objectlon. Besides, they
do not allow the people to have any
voice ln the appolntment of thelr road
foreman. The members of thls ap?
polntlng board, under thc pandlnp- blll,
w'th one excoption. aro answerable
to the people, and the people can see
that they appoint the proper men or
know the reason why. I have no ob?
jectlon whutever to the electlon of thls
board by tho people if they want it.
"Second: The supervlsors complaln
that the road commlsslonors would
not have to account to any one for
thelr expendltures. Thls ls a gross
nilstake. One of the objects of the
blll ls to have the road money prop?
erly nccounted for. The road boanl
would havo to report all bllls to thc
chalrman of the floard of Supervlsors
who would bo requlred to audlt them
Under the present law, the supervlsors
make thc bllls, report to themselves
order the money pald to themselve.i
colleot lt and pay lt out without hav
fng to report to any one.
Would Hnve Appenl.
"Thlrd: They say that the road _oan
would act as vlewcrs and appralsen
In opening new roads, and that the c.lt
Izcns would havo no redress. That I:
n mlstake. Under the present law, th1
supervlsors appoint vlewcrs and ap
pralsers, who report to them, and an:
person dlssatlsfled w'th the report ha
an appeal to the court. The new lav
simply requlres the road board to ac
without compensatlon ln order to sav
the county the expense of tho vlewen
any any person feeling hlmself ag
grleVed can appeal to the court Ju_
us under the present law.
"Fourth: It ls urged that there 1
no llmlt to the number of men wh
might be employed by tho road Tboari
I do .not think lt consistent to urg
that as a defect when thore la n
llmlt to the number tho supervlsoi
niay now cmploy. Those mon wlll t
solected because of thelr knowledg
j of road work, an. w..? not emplo
i any more than wlll be necessary.
y would be wrong to llmlt thom ln th
_ P?oplc Oe. Faets.
"Fifth:'They allege that the ro;
board would levy taxes. Thls ls r
error. The blll expressly provlde
that the supervlsors shall make tl
lovy for road purposes In such r
amount as tho road board thinks wl
be necessary?not less than 10 cen
nor more than 25 cents on tho $10
ln thls way the peoplo wlll know ho
much of tholr taxes go to the roa.
At present thc supervlsors do not 1
tlie people know. They Include lt
tho general county levy. I am 1
"' formed that one-half of tho coun
lo levy goes to roads, or 20 cents i
tho $100. Are the people gettii
value received for one-half of'tlu
taxes fom tho county levy? The boa
is spendlng $36,000 a year. Whe
does it go? AVould lt not be bett
to have a road board which would ta
the peoplo Into Its confidence?
"Slxth: Objectlon ls mado to t
term "practlcal road . hullder' as a
plled to tho road superlntendent. Th
say he should tte nn 'expert' or 'scicn
lb-' road man. How many of the et
ployes on the road now aro 'expo
or 'scientlflc'? 'Practlcal' includes bo
I know the peoplo of tho county a
wllllng to trust Crawford Redd, w
would be a member of the appointl
board, ln the selectlon of a proper m
for Buperintendent.
I'p tn the People.
"I havo but one object ln view?
beneflt the county. lf tli people i
satisfied wlth the present road m:
agement. 1 have nothlng to say. 1
not thlnk we aro g-etting as good roi
as we should have for the mot

for the peoplo to declde.

to retaln control of thls $38,000 a ye

John Houchcns and Arthur Hughes,

and went into the maln yard, whence
egress onto the trestle was easy.
The runaway proceeded only a few
Isteps on the trestle when he went
down, all four legs sllpplng through '
. between the tles and hls body resting

After tho horso's legs had thus
i been securely bound, a band of strong
